I haven’t coded/learned much since XHTML 4.1 was the main thing. That was a few years ago. I also have only known HTML/CSS up to this point. I want to gain more experience, meaning getting a grip on HTML5, CSS3, Wordpress, JS, and possibly some PHP & MySQL.

As people experienced in this area, how do you think I should proceed? I understand it will take much effort, so I suppose the better question would be, where do you think I should start?

Thanks, Jar

Hello Jar. This was my own path and it makes complete sense to me: HTML 5 -> CSS 3 -> JavaScript -> jQuery -> PHP -> MySQL -> WordPress (currently learning).

I also took some courses on design, interface design, web design, user interaction, information architecture and the web design process (from idea to hosted). From time to time I felt the need for meta-learning: how the internet works, how to setup a server on your machine, how to manage several websites on the same shared host server, well, the small details that you need to learn in order to tie things up. Lynda.com provided me with most of the stuff I learned. It is a great resource and definitely recommended.

There is no best solution fits all, it depends on you.

For me, manuals worked great; JavaScript, http://www.ecma-international.org/publications/files/ECMA-ST/Ecma-262.pdf PHP, http://www.php.net/manual/en/

etc.
